Happy Independence Day, Beanies. The Idiots are celebrating the beginning of the U.S. with the end of their show. That's right, this final episode of Coffee with Idiots features Libby Ballengee: writer for dayton.com, Gem City Podcast-er, and advocate of the Dayton music and arts scene. She stopped in to talk hometown pride, her origins as a podcaster, and some outdated tech that even Brandon Berry didn't know about. This episode is brought to you by tearful goodbyes and free audio software.

The Idiots are back at it with an old friend of the show. Daniel "Diesel" Hood came back on to get a few things off his chest. This time, he talks about his own comeback with his radio show Ohio is on Fire as well as some past conflicts with his former superiors that tried to keep his dream down. This episode is brought to you by caffeine and alcohol (not together, of course).

This week, up-and-coming stand-up comedian Trevor Ginsberg (@TrevorGinsberg) sat down with the Idiots to discuss his brand new comedy career. He also treats our ears to a sample of his beat-boxing talents, effectively blowing Tyler's mind. They talk millennials, obsolescent media, and the impact of hip hop in this episode riddled with audio difficulties. This episode is sponsored by ourselves, because we don't do ads anymore.

For this milestone episode, Kyle and Michael Andes dropped in to talk good old rock and roll. They are the respective lead singer/guitarist and drummer of Dayton rock band RIND. They talk influences, creative processes, and the origin of their band name. Two RIND songs, "Dancing on the Oceanside" and "Lame Brain," are used as interlude music with permission. This episode is sponsored by nobody because ads are annoying.

When in doubt, bring in a good friend for a repeat guest. This week is the return of Sabareesh Sundaravel: college buddy, app creator, and resident Indian. They laughed, they yelled, and they almost cried. It got pretty deep. Plus, a tribute to the late Tom Petty.

The Idiots like to meet people for the first time on mic during their interviews. Such was the case with this week's guest Riza Ingalls, a student and friend of past guests Andy Carper and Matt McCormick. The guys talk about Ayahuasca and DMT as well as how to stay sane in a world that wants to drag you the other way. Cool talk with a thoughtful guy, but first: toilet humor from Brandon Berry.

For the monumental 20th episode, the first guest on Coffee with Idiots, Andy Carper, comes back to redeem himself after being part of what the Idiots consider their least favorite episode. Andy and the guys talk career stuff, passion stuff, and heartbreak stuff as they patch over their once damaged friendship. Andy would be the first to tell you he's a guitar player, so they couldn't get through a chat without talking jam sessions, their musical roots, and the current state of the music biz....

Matt McCormick stopped by for a second round in the Idiots' basement to chat about his recent trip to Mexico where he experienced a psychedelic medicine made from the secretions of a toad. He previewed the 5-MeO-DMT toad milk on his last episode, but he wanted to finish the story of his enlightening trip. They also get into the wonders of meditation, the power of yoga, and the unimportance of coffee mugs.

Actor, comedian, radio host, hammer-wielding grizzly bear: Don Smith is everything the Idiots have ever wanted to be. They sit down in a musty basement to talk about anger resolution, horrible bosses, and the time Don was banned from a comedy club for having some damn integrity. Also, Don walks us through some of his past and present acting experiences, including some feature films. Check out The Life on WWSU Radio, on Podbean, or on Facebook.

Seth Clouser is an aspiring author, but is no doubt a prolific writer. He was a classmate of the Idiots, but they never had the courage to approach the man with the intimidating beard. Now, you can hear them talk extensively about the creative process, the Dark Web, and Irish-ing up your coffee. You can read his weekly blog, here.

The Idiots somehow managed to book the big cheese of Dayton podcasting, IzzyRock. You may have heard him on the Gem City Podcast or perhaps witnessed him rocking out and supporting a local jam band. Either way, you'll feel like you know him after this episode. He talks about his rough upbringing in East Dayton, how psychedelics changed his perspective, and his outspoken love for podcasting.

Tenth episode! You didn't think they could do it, and neither did they. Now look at 'em. They're on the top of the world with their fifty-some followers, interviewing the greats! This week they got fellow podcaster and classic video game enthusiast, Courtney Condy! She wasn't easy to get, but they managed to woo her into submission with their smooth, degenerate charm. The Idiots talk her sense of smell, her podcast and web series, Ladies Knight, and haircuts. Drink it up, Beanies!
